The cyst Naboth , although not considered high risk, can bring some headaches for the carrier. But after all, what is a naboth cyst?
What is Naboth Cyst?
The uterus is a malleable organ and its formation is like pores of the skin, full of microscopic holes. Throughout the cycle, the mucus changes, time is elastic with the influence of estrogen, time is more opaque with the influence of progesterone. The real problem is when these mucus penetrate the cavity of the pores and naboth glands and harden . Then the naboth cyst arises. Initially it looks more like a spine in the uterus and usually appears initially in the cervix.
The cyst can appear together or even be just one. The size will depend on how much mucus is trapped inside the clogged orifice. Yes clogged! The glands that manufacture these mucus can literally become clogged and then the cyst is born and can cause discomfort for women or not. The collection that “fills” the cyst is physiological so it is not a risk for the woman who has them.
Causes of Naboth’s Cyst
Clogging of the glands does not happen out of nowhere. Some factors cause this to happen. Although the cyst is not malignant, it can have some consequences and it is important to know why this naboth cyst appeared. The vast majority of cases of the appearance of the naboth cyst are due to cells identical to the inside of the uterus that cover the glands.
But it can also be caused by inflammation, infection or irritation of the cervix. The factors that cause these irritations or infections to happen are diverse, but they include some serious diseases like chlamydia and syphilis but also bacterial proliferation like candidiasis for example. The cyst itself is not a danger or will cause damage, what it did can be much worse than the problem of growth or clogging of these naboth glands.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
